Welcome to SicilYoga!
Why "SicilYoga? Because I believe that "Knowledge of the self goes through knowledge of the place we live in"
...and when this place happens to be Sicily, there is so much that awaits to be discovered!
Regular lessons for the month of April 2020
At the momento I teach only ONLINE lesson with the Zoom app.
If you have been practising with me before, you are welcome
to join me!
I offer 2 lessons a day, and you can join me live or follow the recording afterwards.
If we have not met in person before, I hope we will be able to do so soon!

Trek + Yoga & Yoga in Nature Offers
Sicily boasts a variety of unique natural environments in Europe, from beaches to volcanoes, from streams to mountains, from forests to lakes... that's why I like to share with you my passion for the natural beauty of this island and combine it with my love for Yoga! You can join me even if you have never practised Yoga: an interest in discovering the hidden gems of Sicily is, however, required!
You can choose between 4 offers:
Trek + Yoga inside a non-active volcano!
There are many non-active volcanoes around the Etna. We will hike up (or down) towards the volcano and practise Yoga inside of it! Certainly something to tell about when you're back home ;)
Trek + Yoga next to the water element: can be a river, a lake or the sea! Practising next to the water makes the experience extra-relaxing and regenerating, especially when the heat is too much. Bring a swimsuit!
Trek + Yoga under ancient trees and/or archaeologically rich areas. Live, experience and breathe the deep connection to Mother Earth by practising under century-old trees or by sacred stones.
Trek + Yoga on top of a mountain! Breathe in the scenery, fill your lungs with pure air, observe the world from another point of view and take it all in.
(There are also options for people that do not feel to comfortable with heights!)
Practical information: The Trek+Yoga Tours are available to everyone, whether you have practised yoga before or not. The tours are individualised to your preferences of time and intensity (more to walk, less to walk, crazy hike, gentle stroll ecc). The Yoga practice lasts 1 hr and will be tailored on your experience.
Pick-up might be available from your accommodation.
The tour destinations vary according to weather conditions and season of the year.

My first Yoga lesson was in McLeodGanj on the foothills of the Himalaya in India with Yogacharya Lalit in 2007, and since then my love for yoga has grown bigger and bigger until I decided I wanted to share my love for Yoga with everyone.
After a degree in Biology and a career as an researcher in Enviromental Studies which was to blossom in a PhD, going past some yrs in the tourist industry, in 2013 I decided to change my life and took a teacher training course with Esther Ekhart. I am now a happy RYT200 teacher certified by Yoga Alliance US. I am certified as a Hatha Flow Yoga Teacher, having completed a training course consisting of over 200 hrs of comprehensive training, which includes the study of asanas, pranayamas, anatomy and physiology, meditation and teaching practice.
In 2014 I trained to become a Yin Yoga teacher with Joshua Summers and the year after I took a Pregnancy Yoga teacher training course, specialising in Pre and Post-Natal Yoga under the guidance of Michelle Kaminsky.
I continue to study, fully aware that we never stop learning!
You can also read some articles I wrote for the EkhartYoga Blog by clicking on the following links:
I live and teach regularly between Taormina and Catania, in the Eastern side of Sicily, and I'm happy to arrange private lessons in English, both indoor and in Nature. My classes are a mix of Vinyasa Flow, Yin, Anusara, Somatics and Yoga Therapy elements to make sure that every one can discover and get what they need out of their practice. My meditation practice is influenced by the Vipassana meditation as taught by Goenka-ji. At the moment my biggest inspirations come from Esther Ekhart, David Lurey and Jeff Fosters.
